Join a league or grab some friends, and bring out your competitive spirit in organized sports. The Active Oval, a former race track, is one of the highlights of Piedmont Park for fitness lovers. Here you’ll find a running track, two soccer fields, two softball fields and two sand volleyball courts. In 2016, the oval had over 68,000 reserved players on its fields.

Due to size, fencing and turf management, several sports are not permitted on the grounds. Please see the guidelines below for hours, rules, and details.
